Book Three, Running Away With You, will give everyone the chance to finally meet David Jorgenson, Juliette’s ex-boyfriend. Here’s what we know about David so far:
“My ex-boyfriend David was a complete jerk and an imposter. He pretended to care, but it was all an act. David was a pretty package, but nothing more than an empty box. I was immediately attracted to his good looks and forgot to look deeper for the qualities that matter the most. It turns out I wasted a year and a half with someone who didn’t deserve my time. I need a break from men. That’s one of the reasons why I moved back to Jersey after graduation. I could have easily started a life for myself in Colorado, but I had to put as many miles between that SOB and myself as I could.” ~Running Back to You
“My last boyfriend David didn’t really get along with my friends. He preferred it when we hung out with his friends or with no one at all. Now, when I look back, I can see that he was isolating me and causing me to become dependent on him. My friends were getting frustrated with me and started calling less and less. That’s why when he was unfaithful to me, the pain was nearly unbearable.” ~Running Back to You
“My last year in college, I came dangerously close to living a life I swore I would never allow. David was someone I thought I could build a life with. I couldn’t have been more wrong. It happened slowly, so slowly that I didn’t even notice at the time, but I can see now how many similarities there are between David and my father. To the outside world, David was fun-loving and an all-around nice guy, just like my father. But behind closed doors, he became pensive, dark, and brooding. My moods started changing based on David’s moods. I stopped making decisions and instead let his frame of mind dictate our activities.” ~Running Back to You
“I’m reminded of my last boyfriend, David. He thought the universe revolved around him and would often forget about plans and promises. He’s so far back in my rear-view mirror, I’m always surprised when memories of him and our nearly two-year crappy relationship creep back up into my mind.” ~Running Home to You
“She supported me throughout my two-year relationship with the jerk, David. When I finally opened my eyes and realized what a manipulative ass he was, she never once said, “I told you so.” She just helped me pick up the pieces and move on.” ~ Running Home to You
All we really know is that David was a first-class jerk. In Running Away With You, Juliette’s past comes back to haunt the couple in ways that even Juliette could not have imagined. What do you do when someone you once loved turns into your worst nightmare?
